Budget smartphone outfit Realme has shown off a quad camera smartphone that is packing a 64MP primary sensor.
There8217;s no name on the new phone yet, but we do know what camera sensor we8217;ll get. Realme8217;s smartphone will be packing Samsung8217;s ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor, which is a 1/1.72″ sensor with a pixel size of 0.8μm. Factor in Samsung8217;s Tetracell technology, which implies 4-in-1 pixel binning as part of the process, it8217;s likely that for every click of your shutter you8217;ll get a 16MP image with a pixel size of 1.6μm.
If this confuses you, you8217;re not the only one. In short, all of these numbers add up to a camera that should, in theory, perform better in low light. Rather than a 64MP sensor churning out huge images, here the four cameras are all pulling together to make an image with great exposure, something the pixel binning excels at.
A lot of the final image quality will depend on the image processing that goes on behind the scenes, and in previous reviews we8217;ve been happy enough with the image quality on Realme devices: take a look at our review for the Realme 3 Pro, which has a much worse sensor, but still manages to bring its A-game in terms of photography.
The company are also boasting about their usage of AI for scene recognition and image work, so there8217;s even more to be enthusiastic about, even if I refuse to be drawn into a discussion of its objective quality before we have one in our hand to test, but if this phone also squats in Realme8217;s budget price bracket it8217;s going to be a hell of a contender.
The phone will launch at some stage in the second half of this year, although there8217;s absolutely no word at this stage on when and where in the world it will surface, so if you want a killer camera at a budget price, the best bet seems to be to cross your fingers and hope Realme8217;s newest addition launches over here at a great price.
